Old mill houses were once a common feature on the landscape of the valley, and La Cotte is one of the few original mills that remain. This artisanal workhouse was restored in 1989 by the Franschhoek Conservation Trust in association with Franschhoek Cellar. This Chenin Blanc pays homage to this valued landmark. The grapes for this wine undergo a long, cool fermentation in stainless steel followed by four months on the yeast lees for added richness and complexity.
